Let's talk about Apps

Join us for a workshop about apps – what to choose, how to implement, pros & cons, pitfalls & successes.

Guest speakers will share their experiences with us and there will be lots of opportunity to ask questions and share ideas.   Together we’ll build shared knowledge of apps in the cloud.

  • Do you want to streamline systems in your business?
  • Are you interested in implementing apps but unsure how to start?
  • Does the thought of working on your App Stack overwhelm you?

This is the workshop for you!  Come and talk about apps, get some ideas and some shared experiences navigating the app minefield.

In this session we’ll cover:

  • how to choose apps that work for you
  • pros & cons of various apps
  • integration of apps in the cloud
  • implementation
